Matt Adams puts the Cardinals ahead in NLDS Game 4 with a go-ahead three-run blast

More seventh-inning magic from these Cardinals.

Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw was crusing through the first six frames of Tuesday night’s NLDS Game 4 at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, but Matt Holliday opened the bottom of the seventh inning with a single off the glove of second baseman Dee Gordon and then Jhonny Peralta singled to left-center field, just over the outstretched glove of Hanley Ramirez.

What happened next? How about a three-run bomb from Matt Adams, who entered the night with just six career homers against left-handers (compared to 28 against righties).

Some fans in St. Louis call him “Big City.” Others — because of his bulky build — like to call him “Big Mayo.”

That was The Biggest Mayo, and the Cardinals are now six outs from advancing to another NLCS.
